Years ago when Home Shop Machinist first came out there was a portable hardness tester that you could build for a modest fee. I think It had some sort of ball in a tube arangement. I have looked thru my old magazines and can't seem to locate it. Anybody have any ideas?

Fowler makes a set of hardness testing files that are not too expensive. A good hardness tester is lots of $$$.
